The station signed on in 1998 with a somewhat obscure oldies format as WZEN, competing with
WQSO. WZEN adopted the WMEX letters shortly after they were dropped by what is now WBIXin 2001. The WMEX call letters, which were also used during the 1980s on what is now WWDJ, refer to a popular top-40 format that aired during the 1960s and 1970s on the present-day WWZNin Boston, Massachusetts. In 2005, the station adjusted to hot AC as "X106", but returned to a more mainstream oldies format as "106.5 WMEX".Fact|date=February 2008
January 28, 2008, AllAccess.com reported that the station was in the process of being sold to the Educational Media Foundationfor $1 million. When the sale is finalized, the station had been expected to change call letters and become the first New Hampshire affiliate of EMF's K-LOVE Christian contemporary musicnetwork.Fact|date=February 2008
June 2, 2008, the station went out with the Righteous Brothers' "Rock n Roll Heaven" as its last tune. While the station changed its call letters to WKHL, implying that it would join K-LOVE, the station ended up joining sister network Air 1instead. A few weeks later, the call sign was again changed, this time to the current WNHI.cite news |first=Scott |last=Fybush |title=Harrisburg's Bruce Bond Charged in Fraud Scheme |url=http://www.fybush.com/NERW/2008/080630/nerw.html |work=NorthEast Radio Watch |date=2008-06-30 |accessdate=2008-07-01 ]
The WMEX call letters may re-appear again, as a construction permit for a station at 88.1 MHz in Edgartown, MA, will have those call letters.
